MEDINA – The Medina Mustang Band kicked off its Spring Street Season traveling to Disney World in Florida with 130 students performing in the Magic Kingdom’s Grand Parade on Friday.

The repertoire was a selection of themes from Disney movies. The parade is about 1/2 mile long and 9 bands perform per day. A band has to be approved by Disney to perform in the parade and that is done by sending a video to them for their review.

While there is no scoring or rating system, Band Director Jim Steele said the kids did a great job. There were many positive comments from the crowd afterwards, and that included people who were not from Medina. There was a large contingent of Medina people there to cheer the kids on. The chaperones did a great job as well.

The next opportunity to see the band perform is the Seneca Falls Pageant May 20-21.
